Miniature was composed in 1985 and is a rhapsodic work of great character and ingenuity. A supportive and effective piano accompaniment contrasts a lyrical and cantabile solo double bass, albeit in a mildly modern idiom, and there are opportunities to demonstrate both musical and technical skills within a short timespan. This should appeal to anyone who enjoys the music of Teppo Hauta-aho and his personal soundworld and effective techniques. It utilses a wide range of the double bass, offering a range of musical and technical challenges for the adventurous and enquiring bassist.

The edition includes piano accompaniments for both solo and orchestral tunings.
